Inter-Organizational Relations and Inner City Manpower Programs.
This is a comparative study of inter-organizational relations of manpower agencies in Cleveland, Philadelphia, and New York City. It analyzes how the political setting of cities affects the organizational design and relations of manpower agencies, and how this, in turn, affects agency performance. Specifically, it analyzes the conditions under which (1) coordinated and comprehensive local manpower systems develop; and (2) particularly productive and unproductive inter-agency relations exist. On the basis of such an analysis, it (3) makes policy recommendations to the Department of Labor on political strategy in dealing with agencies and on appropriate organizational design. Particular recommendations are made for each city, including the choice of prime sponsor. Finally, more generic recommendations are made on setting up and improving local manpower systems that may apply to any city. A much more active leadership role on these matters is urged for the Department of Labor. (Author)
